    This is an untutored group specifically for individual artists to work from the model. We wish to encourage artists to pursue their own vision.

    The session typically starts with a series of short poses, followed by an extended pose after the coffee break.

    Artist tables, drawing boards and stools are available in the studio. Artists bring their own materials. (Most materials can be bought from the Centre’s art shop).

    We welcome artists working at all stages. The environment has developed into a quiet, productive and friendly one.
